Hiker and I did not go for a morning walk because we were waiting for my brother Keith and my friend Ed to arrive. Keith, Ed and I went over to Round Table Pizza for lunch. Hiker had no idea that Keith was coming to visit but I think she thought something was going on because before he got her, she was staring at the front door and she was whimpering. Every time a car went by, she'd run to the door and look outside. I think maybe dogs can “read our minds”. When we got back, we all went outside and played ball with Hiker for a little while, but it started getting hot, so we came back inside. We are supposed to get back up into the 100's this weekend. I was hoping it was going to stay cool. Ed headed back home around 1:45 pm. He didn't want to get stuck in the “going home from work” traffic. So now Keith and I are sitting her on the sofa with Hiker, all full of pizza and felling fat and happy.
